Students' Association of MacEwan University (SAMU)
The Students’ Association of MacEwan University (SAMU) is a student-centered organization committed to serving the needs of the entire student body. SAMU strives to be a strong voice for students through our advocacy, both internally and externally, and through other supports such as the Health and Dental plan, U-Pass, Peer Support, Food Bank, Breakfast Club, and others.
Additionally, SAMU provides students the opportunity to form clubs, write for the griff,our monthly student magazine, work part-time for SAMU, and hosts several exciting events on campus each year, including Fall Fest, Winter Fest, Stress Less, and Speaker Series.
SAMU is governed by an annually elected Students’ Council and Executive Committee. These bodies, voted in by students, are responsible for the vision, mission, and direction of SAMU, and are supported by a full-time and part-time staff. SAMU operates on student fees, and seeks alternative funding through business opportunities, advertising, and events.
